Submerge the vacuum-sealed prime rib into the sous vide water bath. Let the cook for 6-8 hours.

When ready, preheat the oven to 500°F and remove the vacuum-sealed bag from the water and extract the prime rib. Reserve the cooking liquid in the bag. Use paper towels to pat the prime rib dry.

Step 5

Place the prime rib in a roasting pan and roast in the preheated oven until the exterior is seared and well browned, about 10 minutes.

Let the sous vide prime rib rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving along with the au jus. If serving on a large plate, garnish with sprigs of rosemary and serve alongside roast potatoes. Enjoy!
